Our veneers can improve the shape, size, and color of your teeth for a brighter smile. Plus, the veneers we offer are made of durable porcelain material, giving them a natural tooth-like appearance and resistance to staining.

We apply a temporary veneer, then a permanent veneer.
Show off your beautiful smile with natural-looking teeth you love.
There are two main types of dental veneers: composite and porcelain.
Composite veneers are made from a mixture of resin and fine glass particles. They can be applied directly to the teeth in a single visit, and are a more affordable option than porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are what we use for most of our patients here at Paige Priour DDS. While porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite alternatives, there are a few reasons why porcelain is worth it.
Porcelain veneers provide a more natural-looking appearance than composites. This is because porcelain veneers are made from a thin layer of ceramic material that is custom-made to match the color and shape of your teeth. This means that porcelain veneers can help to improve the overall appearance of your smile and make your teeth look more attractive.
Porcelain veneers are more durable and stain-resistant than other types of veneers. This means that they can last for many years with proper care and maintenance, and they are less likely to discolor or become damaged over time. This can make them a good investment for people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth and maintain their new smile for the long term.
Lastly, porcelain veneers' strength allows them to be used to correct a wide range of cosmetic dental issues, such as teeth that are chipped, worn down, or stained. This means that they can be an effective solution for people who have multiple aesthetic concerns with their teeth and want to achieve a more uniform, attractive smile.
With all of this in mind, if you think about it porcelain veneers are actually less expensive, over time, than composite veneers.
The cost of porcelain veneers can vary depending on a number of factors. In general, you can expect to pay anywhere from $925 to $2,500 per veneer. It's important to consult with a dentist to get an accurate estimate for the cost of your treatment.
Our office offers payment options, including CareCredit, to make veneers more affordable for you.

During your initial consult, we'll conduct diagnostics, and discuss the desired outcome for your veneers, whether that means changing size, shape, or color of your teeth.
Once we have finalized your veneer design, temporary veneers will be placed on your teeth while we wait for your permanent veneers to be custom made. These temporaries allow you to see and feel how the veneers will look and fit before they are permanently bonded.
When your permanent veneers arrive, we'll remove the temporary veneers and make any adjustments necessary to ensure a perfect fit. Your permanent veneers are then bonded to the front surface of your teeth.

Veneers are not considered to be permanent, as they typically have a lifespan of anywhere from five to 15 years. After this time, they may need to be replaced. However, with proper care and maintenance, veneers can last for many years before needing to be replaced.
Veneers can look fake or completely natural depending on the shade of white chosen, the materials used, the expertise of the dentist, the quality of the dental lab that makes the veneers, and if the veneers are placed properly. More natural-looking veneers tend to have a natural shade of white, are made of porcelain, are made by highly-skilled ceramists, and designed and placed by dentists who have done many cases in their careers.
There are a few factors that can determine whether you are a good candidate for veneers. Some of these include the condition of your teeth and gums, your overall oral health, and your personal aesthetic goals. In general, good candidates for veneers are people who have healthy teeth and gums, and who are looking to improve the appearance of their smile.
Whether or not composite veneers are a good option for you will depend on your individual situation and goals. Composite veneers are typically less expensive than porcelain veneers, but they may not be as durable or long-lasting. Composite veneers are made of a tooth-colored resin material, and they can be placed directly onto the surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. However, because they are not as strong as porcelain veneers, they may not be suitable for everyone. It's important to consult with a dentist to determine the best option for you.
The length of time it takes to place veneers will vary depending on the specific type of veneers being used and the individual situation. In general, the process of placing veneers can take two or more visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel and taking impressions of the teeth. These impressions will be used to create the veneers, which will be fitted and placed during the second visit. The entire process can take anywhere from one to two weeks. It's important to consult with a dentist to get a more accurate estimate for the length of time it will take to place your veneers.
Yes. While many women get veneers to improve their appearance, lots of men get veneers for the same reason. Sometimes men have a fear of getting veneers because they think veneers will make them look fake, but if your veneers are custom designed for your mouth, they can look completely natural while improving your looks.
In general, dental insurance does not cover the cost of veneers, as they are considered to be a cosmetic treatment. Dental insurance typically covers treatments that are necessary for the health and function of the teeth, such as cleanings, fillings, and extractions. However, some dental insurance plans may offer limited coverage for cosmetic treatments, so it's important to check with your insurance provider to see what is covered. Additionally, some dentists may offer financing options to help make the cost of veneers more affordable. It's important to consult with a dentist to determine the best way to pay for your veneers.
